Google celebrated Salsa Queen Celia Cruz's birthday by unleashing one of their now famous "doodles" today. The Cuban icon, born Úrsula Hilaria Celia de la Caridad Cruz Alfonso de la Santísima Trinidad in La Habana on October 21 1925, passed away on July 16 2003 at the age of 78. Azucar Celia!
Check out some of my favorite Google doodles from 2003-2013 honoring other famous people on their birthday below.
My apologies to Google. On searching further thanks to a link from a user over at meneame.net, I found a few doodles honoring African notables. I posted my 2 faves.
